Bourgogne Côte Chalonnaise Rouge - Château du Cray
These grapes are grown from calcareous soil with high clay content of the Côte Chalonnaise. The slopes are gentle and face towards the East and Southeast.
The Château du Cray is a vineyard of 17 hectares of which 7 hectares are cultivated with the red Burgundy of the Cote Chalonnaise. It is located north of the commune of Buxy. The grapevines are around the château, on the middle of the hillside and benefit from an excellent exposure to the east and southeast.
This wine is made exclusively from the Pinot Noir grape.
The wine is aged first in stainless steel vats, then in oak barrels or casks.
This deep purple-red wine opens with hints of morello cherry and blackcurrant. It is a powerful wine with very harmonious tannin. It is persistent and balanced, providing very fine aromas.
Meats cooked in sauce or grilled, such as a choice charolais filet, a burgundy fondue and strong cheeses (Epoisses, Coulommiers,). With several years aging, it can be an excellent accompaniment to lamb, duck, and game
